I found this useful bit of information in the AARP Bulletin from April 2010:
When Sunmee Huh, a 16 year old high school honor student from Germantown, MD, noticed her 82 year old grandfather struggling to search the Web, she created Good50.com, a user-friendly search engine designed for older adults. The site features a larger search box and fonts and has fewer text ads above the results. If you know someone who might benefit from this great site, please share it with them.
Come in before May 29th to register for the Science in the Summer: Chemistry registration lottery. This year's classes will be held on July 19-22 in both the morning and afternoon.
How would you like to be able to access a "Consumer Reports" type of book site where you can:
- Get great book recommendations from people.
- Keep track of what you've read and what you'd like to read.
- Form a book club, answer book trivia, collect your favorite quotes
Then try www.goodreads.com
Become a member....it's free!
Highly recommended by the librarians here.
If you were signed up for tonight's Secrets of Droon party, it has been postponed. Stayed tuned for new information soon.
